Yes you can take the motor off and manually put it in 2WD, but the light inside will still say 4Low so the ECM will still believe that you are off roading and some system will be locked out. Have you tried lightly tapping the motor while someone pushes the button for 2WD? Hopefully it will go into 2WD and you can drive it.


Check for any damage that has frozen the motor or any relays and or wires lose or frayed? If you're offroading and go over bumps, rocks can jump up and tap your transmission and cause a little bit of a headache.


As long as you dont have the auto 4wd option you can take the motor off and use a wrench to select your transfer case gear back to 2hi
